I Guess My Conditional Endorsement of McCain Hasn't Reassured Him
A week or so ago I mentioned that I will endorse Senator John McCain in the event that the Democrats take back both the House and the Senate in the 2006 elections. Apparently that prospect does not sit well
with him:McCain spoke at a mid-day news conference in Des Moines, where McCain was asked what his reaction would be to a Democratic take-over of the Senate.
"I think I'd just commit suicide," McCain said, as the Republicans standing beside him burst into laughter. "I don't want to face that eventuality because I don't think it's going to happen...I think it's going to be tough, but I think we'll do o.k." A few moments later McCain turned to Congressman Latham and joked that Latham would probably commit suicide first, as polls suggest control of the House is likely to swing to Democrats in this year's election.
